Choroid plexus tumours.

Wolff JE, Sajedi M, Brant R, Coppes MJ, Egeler RM - Br. J. Cancer (2002)

Bottom Line: Histology was the most important prognostic factor, as one, five, and 10-year projected survival rates were 90, 81, and 77% in choroid plexus-papilloma (n=353) compared to only 71, 41, and 35% in choroid plexus-carcinoma respectively (P<0.0005).Radiotherapy was associated with significantly better survival in choroid plexus-carcinomas.This should be followed by adjuvant treatment in case of choroid plexus-carcinoma, and a "wait and see" approach in choroid plexus-papilloma.

Influence of irradiation on survival with incompletely resected CPC. Inclusion factors for this analysis were: Observation time >0, histology CPC, surgery well documented, less than gross total resection. The difference in favour of irradiation is marginally statistically significant (P=0.029, log rank test).

fig5: Influence of irradiation on survival with incompletely resected CPC. Inclusion factors for this analysis were: Observation time >0, histology CPC, surgery well documented, less than gross total resection. The difference in favour of irradiation is marginally statistically significant (P=0.029, log rank test).

Mentions: In both, CPC, (A) and CPP (B), the type of surgery was a statistically significant prognostic factor (P=0.0001, and P<0.00005, respectively, log rank tests).
